Ms. La Tasha Do’Zia-Earley is married with two children. She graduated from the Governor’s School for Performing Arts then went on to study Musical Theatre at Shenandoah University. She started and runs the Selah Theatre located here in Front Royal. She has provided dramatic arts and education for area youth for six years. In 2017 she took 12 high school students to the Virginia Theatre Association conference in which her students, the majority of whom are from Warren County, were the only community theatre high school program to perform in the VTA Fringe Festival.
The Selah Theatre Project is a dramatic arts program for youth ages 13 to 18. Ms. Do’Zia has seen how the theatre arts can impact the lives of young people by helping them gain self-confidence and self-worth along with giving them a safe place off the streets and being a part of a larger ensemble/family.Her dream is to establish a full-time, tuition-free performing arts school in Front Royal.
This summer Selah Theatre Project will hold a musical theatre camp with the award winning Dolly Stevens of Loudon County as summer director. The camp will run four weeks with it culminating in the production of a full-length musical.
She requests funds to provide three Warren County female middle school age students with tuition for the summer camp at $300 each.
Awarded $900 from the Kim South Girl Grant.
